The recent mushrooming of many me-too adventure clubs in Hyderabad has led to many accidents and in some cases, loss of life. The safety record and aspect of adventure in Hyderabad is in question today. Anybody can start an online adventure club or become an organizer with these clubs and lead an adventure event which leads to incidents of trespassing, accidents and loss of lives.
Unfortunately, many unaware participants and those who come to Hyderabad to work become the main target as they have very little knowledge about aspects like safety or quality and settle for what they get. Lack of rules and regulations has made adventure too risky for the inexperienced. Most of the new adventure clubs do not have properly trained or certified organizers which makes them unsafe. They are also not registered with the government which makes it very easy to disappear in case of an undue incident.
These so called adventure clubs advocate being not for profit, but the funds are collected into personal accounts of the organizers. There are no accounts of the funds and there are no governmental statutory requirements to be fulfilled as they are not registered and no one knows where the money goes.
The sad fact is that the mushrooming of these dubious 'clubs' has led to many accidents and loss of life and is threatening the adventure potential and interest in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
